PHIL 3010
Ethics (3,0,0)
Credits: 3
Continuing from PHIL 2010 and PHIL 2210, this course is the advanced study of moral theory. Presented for analysis are meta-ethical theories concerning why we are moral beings, and several theories about how we decide what is right and wrong. In deciding good from bad, a number of theories have been established, all of which have something worthwhile to offer. Students investigate theories and philosophers which may include Mill, Kant, contractarianism, feminist ethics of care, relativism, and Aristotelian virtue ethics.
Prerequisite: At least one of PHIL 1020, 2210, and 3rd or 4th year standing in the BA program, or permission of the instructor
